Holy Thursday at the Cathedral 2017

Passover Thursday celebrations took place at St. Peter Cathedral as they do every year. The faithful packed into the church to attend Passover Thursday mass and to witness the Washing of the Feet. This year, instead of washing the feet of young boys from First Communion, twelve young men were chosen to accept the honor of having their feet washed by their bishop. The following is a list of the 12 young men who had the honor of being chosen in place of the 12 Apostles and having their feet washed by their bishop, His Excellency, Mar Shlemun Warduni:

Layth Karana
Reevan Jankeel
Samer Najeeb
Samal Azeez
Romario Rabban
Mark Marogy

You call me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.”
